The energy was really good, and everyone was strong. We got lots of laughs.. However, we did lose a bit of steam, around minute 25. We're used to doing shows that are 22 long, and the double barrel slot was 40 minutes. So phew, I felt tired in the middle of the show. However, there was a lot of fun. I can definitely tell when my troupemates are just having fun, not worrying about the show. Also, they'll say stuff on stage, and I'll crack up really strongly, and laugh louder then the audience.
People are saying I look more confident on stage. I guess familiarity does breed contempt. Not that I'm contemptous, just that I'm no longer scared shit by being on stage.
Also, I dressed all out last night. Wearing a sexy mini-dress, and really high heels (which suddenly got really painful after the show, I didn't notice during the show). And my troupe definitely treated me different. It was weird, they were much nicer to me, but only a few of my scenes was empowering, I was a sex/wife-bot at least twice. Any of you ladies notice differences in your improv depending on your clothes? Usually I wear shirts and pants, and my troupe usually treat me as one of the guys.
but I must say, I was pretty hot last night. Love that dress. I went to Express yesterday and got 3 mini-dresses. I used to find that shop distasteful, rather mall-y. But their clothes fit surprisingly well. And those dresses were so soft and comfy and fall just right. I'm putting Express above Banana Republic.
in fact, i'm pretty sure i got hit on last night. it's been a while since some stranger aggressively initiated a conversation with me since I am in an introverted phase. ah, clothing. ah, men.
